Not to mention that there is appliancekit, but it hasn't been uploaded into
Debian proper yet. Both DTC-Xen and ApplianceKit are commercially-motivated

The main thing which has stopped getting AK uploaded into proper Debian is
that other dependencies need to be uploaded in order to get full feature
coverage and target support...
